Are you saying this is imposible. I ended up with the x800 xl. Am sure someone out there has the tuner working.

There are numerous threads here at LQ from other users regarding their installation experiences with ATI drivers. It may be worthwhile to review some of those threads to gain insight into what other people have encountered with ATI, and compare it to other choices. Good luck with it either way
